A study by the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission has found that contaminants leaking from the defunct Keegan Landfill in Kearny, N.J. threaten what was once called "the best freshwater marsh in New Jersey" by the Audubon Society. The study was intended to determine the site's suitability for warehouses, but contaminants at the site scuttled the plan. Keegan is one of 10 landfills in the 30-square-mile Meadowlands region.
